Posted in thread: Winter Warmer recipe advice on 11-13-2013 at 06:27 PM
No spices, other than possible some spiced tea, which I'll add at flameout and steep for 10
minutes. I also appreciate the advice on the hops. I'm still torn on whether or not I want to
remove them en...

Do you want a winter warmer as in the actual style (most people don't realize it's a distinct
style, listed in the BJCP as a subcategory under Old Ale), or just a good brew that suits the
winter? And ...

I'm putting together a winter warmer to brew in about a week and a half, but I would really
love some input on the tentative recipe, as well as advice. 1bbl batch sizeOG 1.069 FG 1.017

Posted in thread: Pitching rate for 1bbl saison? on 10-20-2013 at 09:18 PM
Thanks for the input, guys. How would you feel about 5 packs in a 5L starter instead? Still

Posted in thread: Pitching rate for 1bbl saison? on 10-18-2013 at 02:19 AM
If I'm brewing a 1bbl batch of a light saison (around 1.045 OG), the "proper" pitching rate

packs from th...

Here's what I ended up doing, which leads to another question (if you couldn't tell already,
I'm new to brewing "wild" beers):The leftover wort was 1.020, so I added a pound each of wheat
DME and Pils...
Posted in thread: Using Roselaire in high-IBU wort on 09-27-2013 at 07:36 PM
The wort came from the final runnings of a larger brew session, which produced another 5
gallons of low-moderate OG wort (I'll measure it tomorrow when I pitch the yeast). I didn't
brew this beer, so ...

I've come across some leftover wort from an IPA batch and I have a spare pack of Roselaire
blend in the fridge. I'd like to just pitch it into the IPA wort and forget about it for a
while, but would t...
